Overview

Our firm has been recognized as one of the prominent leaders in the field of dispute resolution for many years. Our pedigree dates back to our foundation in 1983 by Dr. Michael Cheshin, Deputy President of the Supreme Court of Israel, and continues to this day, underlined by the fact that our firm has produced a very high number of judges at all levels in the Israeli court system. 

The firm's sheer breadth of litigation experience spans across many, including thousands of cases involving consumer claims, securities, and antitrust. Our experience in derivative litigation is particularly recognized by clients. Thanks to our successful track record and depth of talent, we continue to be leading figures in the defence of high-profile class action and derivative action lawsuits across a range of sectors, including banking, insurance, energy, telecommunications, environment, pharmaceuticals, aviation and many more. Our success in each of these areas is bolstered by the experience of our firm's sector-specific departments, who's practical knowledge is key to our litigation strategies.
